The List of Names the BBC Did Not Want You to See

Last month Guido reported that the BBC were refusing to respond to a Freedom of Information request asking for the names of scientists who attended the now infamous climate change seminar in 2006, that was convened to decide BBC climate change policy. The BBC Trust admitted that the evidence given at the seminar led to an unprecedented editorial decision to no longer give equal airtime to opponents of the climate change . At the time Guido wondered why the BBC was spending a six-figure sum to keep the names of the specialists who dictated their editorial policy secret? So who was there?

 

Well if the BBC had their way we would never know, they are still trying to fight the publication of this list, however what is believed to be the complete who’s who has now been acquired by legitimate sleuthing by Maurizio Morabito:

 

There's a long list of names there.

If you wish to drive the stake further into these vampires' hearts, post the link in other forums etc

 

What you might call fair and balanced: the conference was billed as bringing together “the best scientific experts”. Scientists, “scientists” and hippy campaigners, but what the Beeb will be most embarrassed by is the representative from the disgraced Climatic Research Unit who were exposed three years later for manipulating data to fit their arguments.

 

Emails from Mike Hulme, second on that list, were at the heart of the Climategate scandal.

 

No wonder the BBC are wasting your money hiding this…

"BBC was spending a six-figure sum to keep the names"... secret

The Usual suspects ?

 

Well, at least they became Scapegoats for the BBC's latest scandal

When will people tire of seeing their licenses fee going towards cover-ups, and payoffs by the BBC ?

Well, I have thought about it. I talked yesterday with the GF about canning the TV licence and going totally web for news/info.

We canned SKY this month because they simply suck. Service issues, don't like subsidising footballer's salaries etc.

I will be working towards no TV licence next year.

 

I think it was the Director-General leaving after 50-odd days with a full years' salary wot dunnit for me!

Way too much of our society's time is spent watching sports.

 

(and way too much money is spent on sporting events.)

 

I do not think it will always be this way

Is this the grumpy thread? It's a great idea to have one! I'll think of something soon to add to it, I'm sure.

 

I like the BBC (a lot), and sports ... so I'll have to think of something else.

As the Long Emergency accelerates, people will find they are better off spending their time growing and cultivating good home-grown food,

than wasting time in front of the tube watching sports.

 

No grumpy-ness is required (though a recent article called JHK: "Forest Grump")

just a desire to improve ones health, as the distribution system, and the medical system falls apart.

If (huge if) we ever get to that stage, it'll be one hell of a rude awakening for many just how much time & effort it actually takes to grow relatively little (yet fantastically tasting) produce.

 

Add in a bad summer (like this year) and bang goes most of that food and you have a good old fashion famine.

 

Perhaps this is why we moved away from the agrarian model of society in the first place, and why our society, with all its problems, really isn't so bad? :rolleyes:

 

Indeed, it might actually be worth trying to keep it :lol:

Sure.

But what if Industrial Agriculture begins to fail, and/or transport costs rise dramatically?

Having that kitchen garden, or hobby farm provides a great hedge

Then poor countries and people will probably be very hungry and we would go back to eating foods that don't have to be flown around the world.

 

Then we'd probably tell the EU to stop fishing in our territorial waters, backed up with a few nuclear submarines (knew they'd come in handy one day :rolleyes: ) and start eating more fish (very healthy ;) )

 

I hear the UK is now >60% self sufficient in food production (nearly 75% in the type we can grow here). Highest number for a long long time. Wouldn't take a gigantic effort to add enough home grown and cut the horrendous waste down a bit.
